If you happen to be one of the lucky few that are running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it looks like Google has released an updated version of the Chrome browser. The app is still noted as being in beta, however it has gone up to version 0.16.4215.215. Aside from the change in version number though, it looks like Google has taken care of what they are describing as some “essential” bug fixes. Additionally, this latest build is also noted as bringing the following;

  • Android Beam support – now beam URLs from Chrome to other devices with NFC
  • Support for additional countries
  • Compatibility checks to ensure system prerequisites for Chrome are met

That being said, those with Chrome for Android already installed (or those looking to install it for the first time) can grab their Ice Cream Sandwich running device and fire up the Android Market.
